A DPO is often required by law. Does this also apply to you?

"If you look at the latest change to the privacy statement on any website, you will see that the last change often dates from early 2018: the moment that the GDPR officially replaced the Dutch Act "Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens" (Personal Data Protection Act). That shows how the GDPR lives in companies," says Jeroen Bosch van Rosenthal of DPO Consult. "Particularly in terms of a DPO, things are still a bit off."

Trust Guard was a logical step in online fundraising

Stichting GeefGratis and Business to You go way back - and we're proud of it. has been working with Trust Guard and its seal on the website for some time now; a good opportunity for us to catch up with founder Jordan van Bergen.

Webshop security: your responsibility

Retailers with a physical shop have locks on the door, a decent alarm system, fire extinguishers, good insurance and so on. Online, on the other hand, there is hardly any investment in good security. That is a double standard. Online, however, there is also danger. In fact, online you may be an even bigger potential target. Investing in proper security is crucial. You are even legally obliged to secure your website or webshop adequately.

We missed you on the e-Commerce Xpo in Kortrijk

On 14 and 15 October, we had a stand at the e-Commerce trade fair in Kortrijk. At the fair, we demonstrated how Trust Guard can help you keep your customers' data safe.

Deadline for Code of Conduct on Access Security for Hospitals is rapidly approaching!

As more and more patient data is stored in digital files, secure access to this data is a real necessity. Not only to protect against cybercriminals, but also to ensure that only the right staff members have access to the files. That is why hospitals are obliged to carry out an audit to test the security. Trust Guard helps you to prepare and carry out this audit.

Trust Guard’s innovation train never stands still

In order to be able to offer and continue to guarantee optimum security for your website, Trust Guard's product development never stops. In this blog, we are pleased to share the most recent innovations with you.

Protect your crown jewels

Newspapers and news sites publish reports of successful hacking or ransomware attacks almost daily. Cybercrime is the most lucrative form of crime and is far superior to human trafficking or drug trafficking worldwide. It can have a huge impact, but no one mirrors it in their own business.

Website security on IPv6

The government-wide standardisation of IPv6 addresses is in full swing. The conversion from IPv4 to IPv6 not only entails the use of new structured address blocks, but also many improvements in the area of security. With its new scanning technology, Trust Guard offers a solution for companies and government organisations that already work with IPv6 addresses.
